I expected to see more than that.  On a machine of mine I see this

  Xsession: X session started for rwp at Mon Jun 27 13:18:44 MDT 2005
  startkde: Starting up...

If you are not seeing the starting up message from startkde then I
would start debugging there.  It is a shell script.  The starting up
message is about half way down.  So it should be possible to trace it
and to see where it goes bad for you.
